The Anarchist by David Mamet

Theatre Communications Group (TCG) is pleased to announce the publication of the newest play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet: The Anarchist. Just having completed its world premiere on Broadway under the direction of the playwright and starring Patti LuPone and Debra Winger, Mr. Mamet’s work is also currently represented on Broadway with the revival of his award-winning Glengarry Glen Ross starring Al Pacino and Bobby Cannavale.

“Mamet remains the American theatre’s most urgent five-letter word.” ? Guardian (London)

Nothing is quite what it seems in Mamet’s latest work. Set in a female penitentiary, David Mamet's two-woman drama is about Cathy, a longtime inmate with ties to a violent political organization, who pleads for parole from the warden, Ann. With a nod to his mentor, Harold Pinter, Mamet once again employs his signature verbal jousting in this battle of two women over freedom, power, money, religion – and the lack thereof.

“Students of Mamet won’t want to miss it. I was engaged and compelled throughout. Indeed, The Anarchist is a counterweight to the conventional dramatic tropes of family, love and death.” ? Chicago Tribune

David Mamet is a playwright, essayist and screenwriter who directs for both the stage and film. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Glengarry Glen Ross.
